Mental Health Awareness Month 2021
OSAS highlights the month of May by focusing on the healing value of connecting in safe ways, prioritizing our mental health, and acknowledging that it's okay not to be okay. Mental Health Awareness Month started in 1949 by Mental Health America (MHA). This year's theme is continuing on from 2020, #Tools2Thrive. If you would like to learn more about Mental Health Awareness Month please visit: https://mhanational.org/mental-health-month. There is a downloadable toolkit that provides resources and tools to raise more awareness about mental health.
Lastly, just a gentle reminder for us at OSAS:
